THE DUDE NURSE
Nurses Coming Together For Better Patient-Centric Care
My name is Klaus Campos, BSN-RN, I have been working within the healthcare world for a while now, first as a patient transporter for the radiology department, where I got to explore all sectors of the hospital. I then became a PCA (CNA) and started working in a cardiac telemetry unit, I was exposed to an amazing group of nurses that influenced me to seek my degree in nursing, (also had some lazy ones that served as motivation to get my degree and stop working under their supervision). Once I obtained my degree and license I was privileged to work with the same group of nurses that influenced my career choice. I learned innumerous lessons from the Cardiac Special Care Unit staff. I then became a travel nurse, I cherish this decision because, I now have the opportunity to learn and see how different hospitals operate, different management styles and meet new people, taking little lessons learned from each one to wherever I go next.
I have chosen to start blogging, not solely on the facts that I got bored one day and wrote my first post, but because I wanted to contribute more to the field of nursing, sharing my views and opinions and receiving feedback and constructive criticism. I came up with The Dude Nurse, a not so clever name because I am often the only dude on the unit. I want to build a community for Nurses to come together and discuss the healthcare field of today. Becoming better informed with new and up-to-date nursing related topics, and how to improve your patient's outcome.
I try to publish weekly posts about the nursing field and health care. The Dude Nurse is my social media space to share thoughts and views on current events and patient care.
STAY IN TOUCH!
